Farmhouse
Carregywen farm house is a very large four bedroom traditional farm house set in a secluded location between the Cambrian Mountains and the Brecon Beacons, three miles from Builth Wells. The house is set within over a hundred acres of private farm land, in a large private garden with lawns, wild flower area, barbeque and terrace, and has stunning views across the valley to the South-West. The house is next to a quiet farm yard, with no neighbours for half a mile. The house sleeps eight people comfortably in three double bedrooms and one twin, with two en suite bathrooms, a main family bathroom, large open plan lounge-kitchen-diner with a cosy log fire (with all the wood you can burn included in the price), and secondary snug lounge for those that prefer some quiet time.
